Re: Deathsmiles (PCB)

I lost one live with full bombs shortly before Jitterbug, otherwise it would be a clear. What do you mean with the 2up? The second 1up from score? Got that way before Jitterbug... Also any hints where to overdrive in the last level for higher score? Don't bomb jitterbug at all and he drops a 2up Ed...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

Success! You lucky dog, you! :) Basically everything that's metal should be earth grounded (I keep repeating earth, because earth and DC ground on the PSU are things you don't want to mix). For speakers you want to make sure your replacements are the same ohm. Thanks! :) I would like to get the pow...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

GOOD NEWS!!! I changed the fuse and everything is fine. Thank god I did not connect the chassis to the PSU in the beginning, but it was connected to the original cable and got a short circuit when I had both cables inside and turned it on. You can see the connectors for the electricity of the chassi...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

So next step would be to get a new fuse for the chassis and connect the psu set to 100V to the stepdown converter right? I would need a japanese plug cable with three lines for it. Could you please confirm that I don´t need the original power cable of the cab anymore? I could then just cut that off...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

The chassis fuse is probably a slow blow one which is why it looks it is still intact. The fuse in your wall is a fast acting one. If you have a continuity setting on your multimeter, you can test the fuse. Unfortunately, I would be very surprised if your chassis is still OK at this point. Your new...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

Ruh roh. It's a japanese cab, so your chassis and ballast will run on 100V. You didn't connect these to 240V, did you? There's no transformer inside your cab, which means you must have had a separate step down transformer prior to this. Damn, as I thought. I connected them to 220... As I said the E...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

OK, I took a nightshift and did everything according to my thoughts and your suggestions. The outcome was not very good resulting in toasting the fluruoscent bulb and not getting any picture. Sound is there though. Yes, that's your AC input. I wired everything to the new PSU and plugged the cable of...

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

Ah got it. Yes it goes to the ballast.

Thank you very much for your help. Gotta say it again, this forum is so great with only nice people - never had a bad experience neither trading nor see any trolls.

Re: PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

Great, thank you! The two wire lead from the fluorescent light will be an AC wire, so one lead is live and one is neutral. Double check that it ends in a ballast to make sure. So these should be connected to the new PSU´s main voltage right? What do you mean with ballast, ground? They are connected ...

PSU and light rewiring SNK Candy 25

I am planning to exchange the PSU in my SNK Candy 25 since it has a crappy one installed and the wiring is a total mess. Would like to exchange it for a standard arcade PSU and would like to ask some questions. First of all, how to proceed? My thoughts until now are to measure the +5v -5v and +12v w...

Re: 100 Mega Shock! Private arcade in Cologne, Germany

Thanks!

The problem is I dont like the woodies. I would like to get a Killer Instinct 2 cab though. But then there is no more space without disturbing the look and comfort we have now... Same with a race cab, although I am really thinking about getting one.
